FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
STORRS, CT, November 9, 2012 − Over 100 items will be up for bid at an Online Silent Auction held by UConn’s Community School of the Arts (CSA) to raise money for its Scholarship and General Support Fund.

Bidders can view and bid on auction items online at www.csa.uconn.edu/auction or at the Tolland Building on UConn’s Depot Campus at 3 Witryol Place, off Route 44 in Storrs, CT.
Proceeds from the Silent Auction benefit the Community School of the Arts Scholarship and General Support Fund at the UCONN Foundation. CSA provides programs serving students that range from toddlers to seniors, and a wide variety of offerings - from private voice and instrument lessons to music and art classes for all ages. There is a consistent need for student scholarships, which can be applied to music or art classes, as well as school vacation programs offered during April and the summer.
